Scott Allen, President of Disciple Nations Alliance (DNA), shares a story of how impoverished communities begin to flourish through the application of Biblical truth, demonstrated in love. After the reformation, “Christians for the first time opened up their Bible and they began to do their farming and their banking and all these different things on the basis of Biblical truth.” “If God exists, and he created everything, then the Bible speaks to every area of life.” Scott says truth and love are two sides of the same coin. “I’m going to seek your good, even if it requires great sacrifice on my part.” Scott tells the story of a colleague working with an indigenous group in Guatemala, that, when they heard Biblical truth about having dominion over creation, helped them solve a problem using their own ideas. “Within a year, almost all of their crop was stored, and their children began to come out of poverty.”
Witt tells how through microbusinesses the gospel is shared in places where Christians are persecuted.
